Could somebody please help me design an Infantry Fighting Vehicle? I need a new IFV, since my BTR-80s got outmatched in the last mishap I had. If nothing else, if somebody would be so kind, I'd like a line art.
Some of the requirements I thought up:
-Reactive or Cage Armor to protect against RPG and general anti vehicle fire.
-Armed with a 35/50mm Bushmaster III Cannon
or an NS equivalent. Secondary Armament would probably consist of two machine guns. Secondary armnement is not a need at this moment in time.
-Thickened armor on the bottom of the IFV to protect against IEDs. I engage in Urban conflicts quite a bit, so this would be nice. It is not, however, a true requirement.
-Diesel engine. I don't need a jet engine in my IFV. (Dear god, none of that)
-A half requirement. A vehicle using a recycled T-90 or T-72 hull would be great.
-Another half requirement. An optional extended and armored plow, similar to the combat dozers, to move snow, broken down or abandoned vehicles, light fortifications, and help with EOD.
-Under 50 Tonnes.
-Able to accommadate 8-14 men, or a full squad
-Something that's truly required. An engine that sits in the front, as to protect crew and passengers from frontal attacks.
Would you kindly help me with this? I'd like something original. If you don't want to help with the write-up, could you help with a line art? I want to design a new and original IFV, but IFVs that meet all of these requirements are nice as well.
